Another update....with more "fun" health issues - UGH!!!
Sunday, July 14, 2013
Well, I haven't been spending much time online lately, so not on Spark much either. I've been taking as many "extra" hours as I can at work, so I worked 3 days last week, instead of just the one. This coming week, it will be 2 days. I can't wait to see my next check in two weeks. It will feel like a windfall. I do a lot of reading when I'm at work, so I've been getting caught up in the books that I've been reading. I think I'm in the 'addicted' stage right now - lol!!!
Doing lots of fitness minutes lately too, which has kept me away. I'm already over 1,000 for this month and I passed my 10,000 yearly fitness minutes some time last month or the month before. Unfortunately, I broke my plateau - the wrong way! I've been gaining. Went to the MD on Friday and mentioned that and to check my thyroid while I was there - which they did. Now on to more of the MD stuff.
Last week I e-mailed my MD to let her know that with all of this horrible humidity that we've been having (worst ever that I can recall). I've been having trouble breathing. I mentioned that I feel like the lady on the COPD commercial where the elephant is sitting on her chest. So, she listened to me and thinks that is respritory (sp?) so she hooked me up with an inhaler. She also did some blood work, on top of checking my thyroid levels, to make sure there's no infection and other things that could be causing this symptom. So I have to wait for the results. Like I don't have enough wrong with me? UGH!
Oh, then my gastroenterologist's office called earlier this week and left me a message that they have the biopsy results in. I almost had a heart attack when I heard that message. I didn't even know they biopsied anything when they did my colonoscopy, so this was scary to hear. Luckily, they were benign and I have another appointment scheduled for later this month.
I'm really trying to not let all this bother me, but it is. The weight gain is like the icing on the stale cake. I'm going on vacation next month and when I went to update our camping checklist, I had to add my new GI meds and my inhaler. It just didn't make me feel that great. I'm really not trying to let it bother me, but I just can't seem to help it right now. Good thing is that I see my therapist this week.
